Need to Increase Enrollment: A Successful Academic Provisionary Program
Kiser, Michelle; Hammer, Emily E.
Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, v18 n2 p217-233 Aug 2016
This article contributes to the literature addressing the needs of increasing student enrollment and retention across university campuses by identifying programs where progress can be made to improve the student retention rate and increase university enrollment. This article derives from a provisional program that began in the fall of 2009 at a 4-year university with respect to a community college partnership. In an effort to obtain information on provisional programs, this article examines the program using student data by researching the program transition rate and transfer rate into the 4-year university, the semester following program completion.
